|ERIC ED268455: A Multidimensional Scaling (INDSCAL) Approach to Pain: Comparison of Cancer Patients and Healthy Volunteers. - ERIC|
Multidimensional scaling (MDS) offers a rigorous approach to many problems in perception, emotion, personality, and cognition, where the stimuli are too complex to be quantified by other means. In these procedures similarity ratings of the stimulus objects are modeled as points in multidimensional space, such that perceived similarity is represented by spatial proximity. The stimulus objects may be physical stimuli or words describing qualities of pain...

|Series: Heaven In the Real World (part 2) - Up, Other or Here? Just Where Is Heaven? 2 Corinthians 12:1-4 - Oct 5, 2014 - Randy Umberger|
So, just "where" is heaven? Is it a literal place? Is it located somewhere in our own universe, or possibly in another universe outside of our own? Or could it be that heaven exists among and around us in a dimension that we cannot see unless we are given open eyes to see it by God? Is it possible that heaven will be right where we are on this little ball called earth at some point in the future? Let's investigate it together!

|Color as Part of an Architect's Design - Wagih Fawzi Youssef|
Color occupies a natural and intuitive part of the design process. If we are to avoid the possibility of future grey, non-chromatic towns and cities, we must re-orientate our concept of spaceâform relationships towards a deeper awareness of colored space and colored form as one totally integrated into the visual experience. At the same time, as a rule, it proves unsuccessful to attempt to conceal dull and monotonous architecture with strong colors...

Genetic algorithm (GA) is an intelligent method based on natural selection for global numerical optimization. To make use of the great advantages of GA, this paper focuses on applying GA to multi-dimensional bin-packing problem (MBP).

Empathy, a basis for altruistic motivation, is viewed as a developmental process by Hoffman and others. Current measures of empathy, such as the Davis Interpersonal Reactivity Index (IRI), have been analyzed by exploratory factor analytic methods which do not allow for the testing of a developmental model of the simplex form. This study was conducted to test Hoffman's theoretical formulations of empathy...

|ERIC ED250399: Multidimensional Difficulty as a Direction and a Distance. - ERIC|
The purpose of this paper is to present a generalization of the concept of item difficulty to test items that measure more than one dimension. Three common definitions of item difficulty were considered: the proportion of correct responses for a group of individuals; the probability of a correct response to an item for a specific person; and the location of the item along a difficulty continuum. This paper defines the difficulty of an item that measures more than one dimension as the direction f...

This study was undertaken to compare non-metric multidimensional scaling (MDS) and factor analysis (FA) as means of assessing dimensionality in relation to item response theory (IRT). FA assesses correlation matrices, while MDS performs an analysis of proximity measures. Seven data sets were generated; each differed from the others with respect to dimensionality. Each set consisted of 28 items and was either one- or two-dimensional, with two-dimensional data sets having interdimensional correlat...

Many researchers have suggested that the main cause of item bias is the misspecification of the latent ability space. That is, items that measure multiple abilities are scored as though they are measuring a single ability. If two different groups of examinees have different underlying multidimensional ability distributions and the test items are sensitive to these differences, any scoring scheme that does not reflect all of the skills in the interaction of the items and examinees (the complete l...

Academic psychology has long been composed of two disciplines, one experimental and one correlational. These two disciplines each developed their own method of studying structure in data: multidimensional scaling (MDS) and factor analysis. Both methods use similar kinds of input data, proximity measures on object pairs. Both represent the object structure in terms of spatial coordinates. When MDS and factor analysis are applied to the same test intercorrelation matrix, how do the results compare...
